"Sherman is an excellent writer and a modest intuitive interviewer. A truly delightful book."--Early Music America
"Excellent...The teeming practical detail of this book is a great achievement in itself, but equally significant is its documentation of the major conceptual issues behind the historical-performance movement"--Anthony Pryer, The Times Literary Supplement
"Inside Early Music is an outstanding achievement. Bernard Sherman has managed to give a broad overview of current trends in historical performance while at the same time focusing on enough of the interesting details and current hot topics to give the book an unexpected depth. He achieves this through his thoughtful selection of interviewees, each discussing his or her own area of specialization, and also through his probing questions."--Continuo
"A book of unparalleled interest. It bristles with sharply defined positions and passionate arguments, all of them expressed with clarity and augmented by the author's insightful and well-informed reflections." --Timothy J. McGee, Library Journal
"I can't imagine a better book of its kind."--Richard Taruskin, author of Text and Act and Stravinsky and the Russian Traditions
"Inside Early Music is a fascinating book, and not just for readers with an interest in early music. Sherman's pointed interviews with opinionated people, and his lucid introduction and postscripts, offer considerable insight into questions about the nature of art, the nature of human nature, and some of the great intellectual controversies of our time."--Steven Pinker, author of The Language Instinct and How the Mind Works
